Vintage Find

I expect to find neat things in a thrift store, but my latest great find was in my parents' basement!

Yep, it's a bunch of great books, some as old as the 1930s.  My dad has always been a collector of books, and they recently went through his large collection to weed them out.  I found these in a box on a table saw and my mom said I was welcome to them.  

They range from classics:

To schoolhouse readers:

And some of those were actually used by my grandmother, Mildred:

I can't wait to stack these great finds on a shelf and maybe share some of these stories in the reader to my kids when they get older!  Thanks, mom and dad!
